Important Notice

November 23, 2006

Further to my last post... NTL have screwed things up.
They were due to install our cable on Friday (in time for the new series of Lost on Sunday). However, due to the fact that our road has recently been resurfaced, they couldn't do it. Apparently the council tarmac'd over our cable point when they did the resurfacing. Of course, NTL didn't bother to tell me this until I had waited in all day for the engineer.

They have now suggested a connection date of 12th December. Unfortunately our existing broadband cuts off TOMORROW and our existing phone line cuts off on SATURDAY. Which leaves us without phone or internet or Lost, for two weeks, exactly during the two weeks we are having our kitchen torn out and refitted.

I am having words with NTL about bringing the date forward, but they haven't got back to me yet. So as we are probably going to be incommunicado from tomorrow, I thought I better tell you all.

So if you want to get hold of me, please ring my mobile. I will be reading my emails at work but probably not replying much. My email address has changed from the entomology-mansions one by the way, so if you don't know it... you can always mail me via Flickr before I disappear completely.

I'm having issues.

It all started when Sky One inconsiderately poached LOST from Channel 4. I love that programme. It's the only thing I watch on TV.

The only problem is we haven't got Sky One. I don't want to download it, or wait for the DVD. I want to watch it one episode at a time, texting Gordy in the adverts.

So, I saw a promotion for NTL, which gives you telephone for £11 a month, plus free digital TV (which includes Sky One). This is the answer! I couldn't care less about switching away from BT, and I get my beloved Lost back. Hooray!

It was only later that I discovered that ADSL Broadband doesn't work through a cable connection. Our broadband is ADSL. You can get broadband via the cable, so I could just add it to our NTL package. So... I cancelled our F2S broadband.

Then I discovered that my webspace, which is hosted on F2S, requires you to have an active account with them. Now we no longer have one, my weblog is going to die. I'm not quite sure when, but it could be as soon as the end of this month. Why is my life always so damn complicated? All I wanted was to watch ONE TV programme, and I've ended up changing our phone provider, broadband provider and now my webhost as well. Sigh.

To be honest, I think I am just going to take a hiatus. I haven't got the time or energy to find a new host, move all my posts and get round to designing a new template. I haven't even had much to say lately.
